I am starting to do a bit of research for the spring NASCAR race in 2017. Has anyone attended a NASCAR race there, better yet...stayed at the RV parking there? I see there is reserved RV parking and that would be the route I would go. I don't want to have to worry about getting a spot.

 

 

We have been wanting to attend a race for a long time but never had a chance. Phoenix is the track we are interested in.  Living up here in the Inland Northwest it will be a drive no matter what track but Phoenix is where we want to go.

 

Any suggestions or tips  you have would be great.

 


love everyday like you won the lotto.

I would call the track directly and ask them the questions.

My experience from Nascar Daytona Speedway.

 

Camping for the week of the 500 was $575 just outside of turns 1 & 2. This included a local news paper at our door steps every morning. LOL!

It had rained heavily the day before and the track made every effort to solve the standing water and mud problems... spreading of hay on the wet grounds and placing pallets at our door steps.

In the camping area there was a Camp World store under a big tent ready to sell you anything you forget to bring.

They had a self serve for waste dump and drinking water. Ask where it is at the gate.

They also had guys/girls who would come around and pump your waste and fill you water tanks and bring ice, at a cost. $30 to fill my 30 gallon water tank.

Camper door shuttle service for the elderly to the grandstands and back. Shuttles were available to all but at certain drop points to the grandstands.

 

Things I would ask when calling about camping at any race track: 

 

1. Is this a family friendly camping area or is it party central? Very important question when attending the Talladega 500 or the Snowball Derby.  

 

Plan on camping next to the guy who runs a ratted out so called quiet generator all day and night because he doesn't want to put any hours on the super quiet diesel generator in his million dollar motorhome. RANT OVER!  

 

Sorry if I drifted away from topic!

 

All in all we have had pleasant experiences at the tracks we've been to.

 

Andy :)

Thanks Andy for your input. With never attending a race and camping there I only have ideas of what it may be like.
